Therefore, the FGTS releases for the month of May will reach R$3.9 thousand in a single month.
The FGTS birthday withdrawal withdraws part of the money from the FGTS account, taking into account the range of balance that the worker has available. In this way, if after making the anniversary withdrawal, the worker still has amounts to withdraw, the citizen can still make the extraordinary withdrawal of up to R$ 1,000.
However, the rule is different for the worker who carried out the anticipation of the birthday loot and now wants the emergency FGTS loot. It turns out that when contracting the anticipation of the three installments of the anniversary withdrawal, the FGTS balance is blocked as a guarantee of the credit operation.
According to information from CAIXA, when the FGTS is withdrawn, the total balance of the FGTS will be blocked, considering that the calculation base for credit was based on the entire available balance in the fund account.

Workers who were born in the month of May and have not yet joined the FGTS will still be able to enter the program until the end of the respective month. In this case, the withdrawals will also be released in the CASHIER.
Those born in the following months will also be able to join the option until the last business day of the birthday month. This new modality, called birthday withdrawal, was created with the objective that the formal worker uses an annual amount from the fund, without the need to comply with the other withdrawal rules.
As mentioned, the release occurs in the month of birth of the holder, having until the last business day of the second subsequent month to carry out the withdrawal. It is worth remembering that membership is voluntary, not mandatory.
In addition, those who migrate to the birthday withdrawal lose the right to withdraw the FGTS totally in the face of unfair dismissal. In this case, only the termination fine of 40% of the balance is released.
Thus, the birthday withdrawal is nothing more than a form of withdrawal released by the Government, in which the worker withdraws a percentage of the amounts that are deposited in the Guarantee Fund accounts.
It is important that the worker observes an important point when joining the FGTS birthday withdrawal. The citizen must choose between carrying out an annual withdrawal of the FGTS through the birthday withdrawal or whether to maintain the withdrawal withdrawal, whose withdrawal takes place when the worker is dismissed without just cause.
Therefore, withdrawals are not allowed at the same time. Either the worker chooses the anniversary withdrawal or the termination withdrawal, being necessary to choose which modality the worker is interested in.
